Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £715,000 property? We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may increase the final invoice. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a conveyancing quote Additional fees found in terms and conditions should be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will the fixtures and fittings include things such as fixed towel rail?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures can be more easily removed. Your solicitor will request the agreement of a fixtures and fittings form to avoid such disputes and will save considerable frustration later.

Q.

Where can I see if the Ripon conservation area is at risk?

A.

Local Ripon conservation areas are nominated by the local Harrogate planning authority, who preside over the state of the area including things like street clutter, rear extensions and paths. English Heritage, a government body, have put together records in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Ripon and throughout England along with the exposure to standards slipping.

Q.

Can you address how to bypass paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is payable on home purchases priced at over £125,000. Stamp duty scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in Ripon, because these schemes are

highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Does the conveyancing solicitor in Ripon advise me on the risk and history of floods in the Ripon area for a Fifties house we are going to purchase?

A.

A conveyancer will carry out official environmental searches, which include Ripon flood risk area data. An inexpensive thorough flood search, such as the Landmark search, could possibly be recommended by your Ripon conveyancing solicitor if in the event that the enviro. search reveal a flood risk.

Q.

Will my conveyancing quote introduce any hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden costs. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

As a consequence of the serious flooding in York and across Yorkshire, I am questioning whether environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

A good Ripon solicitor should apply for in depth environmental searches if the first searches spots a risk.
